Iceland Walking on Mars, Kerlingarfjoll area

  • Please log in or sign up for free to see the GPS coordinates & weather for this photo spot
The Kerlingarfjoll area is one of the most incredible in the Icelandic Highlands after a long drive (which is doable with a 4x4 car without expert knowledge and no river crossings). Park your car at the marked parking area and go for a hike in the area. Make sure not to leave the trails due to geothermal activities.

Photography Tips

Use your drone to get a different perspective of this location. You can walk around, but some angles are not easy to get with a regular camera. The visibility can change quickly, which makes it hard to fly the drone. Also, the wind can pick up fast! I walked in the frame to add a sense of scale to the image.

Travel Information

You need a 4x4 car to get to this location since you must drive several dozen kilometers on a gravel road (F35 and F347) in the Icelandic highlands towards Kerlingarfjoll Hot Springs and park at the 4x4 Parking Geothermal area. When traveling in Iceland, it is always nice to check www.safetravel.is for travel information since road conditions can change fast. The road is not accesable during winter.
